Bath and Body Works Haul Part 2

Bath and Body Works Candle Haul UK

Candles! Did you really expect anything less from me? Nope.
Annoyingly I do have more Bath and Body Works Candles but they are Winter/Christmas fragrances which are at my sisters house and need to picked up at some point. Expect to hear more about them in the coming weeks once I actually try them out etc. For now here are my Autumn picks and probably my favourite Bath and Body Works fragrances. As a side note I mostly purchased the mason jar size this time around as they are far easier to transport and let's face it us girls do find it hard not to be lured in by anything in a mason jar ha!

Bath and Body Works Heirloom Pumpkin Scented Candle
This is the one that I am least sure about it, I had a coupon for a free candle and somehow this made it all the way to the checkout. If I am honest I don't recall giving this a whiff in store. I probably saw the word "Pumpkin" and was sold on the spot. I am such an easy sell. BB&W candles typically have a really strong scent throw but this is a little bland, it doesn't really smell of much despite the claims of Pumpkin, Nutmeg and Brown Sugar notes on the label. Lesson well and truly learnt. Pumpkins don't always equate to instant awesomeness!

Bath and Body Works Spiced Pumpkin Cider Scented Candle
Now we are talking. This is my kinda scent and not worlds apart from Yankee Candle Apple Pumpkin if you are looking for something similar here in the UK. A blend of Apple, Cinnamon and Pumpkin - Autumn in a home scent by any other name. A beautiful rich apple fragrance that is warm yet not spicy at all. The scent throw of this candle is incredible - 30 minutes of burning is all it takes to leave my home smelling like freshly baked cinnamon dusted apple pies. Scrummy!

Bath and Body Works Leaves Scented Candle
Perhaps the most iconic BB&W fragrance? If not it is at least in the top five. "Leaves" is such a bizarre name for any product let alone one that is scented. Much like the above scent this is a warm, cosy, cold weather ready fragrance that will instantly remind you of the Autumn. Okay it may not smell like wet or crunchy leaves (is that really a bad thing though?) but the blend of golden nectar, red apple and spiced berries is irresistible. Admitedly this is one of the strongest fragrances out of the bunch, that really lingers after being burned which is no bad thing as I have yet to meet anyone who is not a fan.

Bath and Body Works Harvest Peaches Scented Candle
First of all I should probably mention that I am not a fan of peach scents, I find them to be stuffy, synthetic and more often than not remind me of aerosol air fresheners. Trust me when I say it was with great surprise that I as much as allowed the sales woman to waft this in front of my nose let alone purchase it. What can I say it is easily one of the most beautiful fruity scents I have ever tried. It is pretty close to the fragrance of real peaches yet has something a little more (cinnamon and autumn spices apparently yet it is in no way spice based) which makes it addictive. Bright, almost zesty yet not sickly in the slightest and straight up 100% delicious. Best described as edible...no I don't recommend eating wax.

That was all I purchased in terms of Autumn based scents, I did stock up on Winter fragrances which I will share in the coming weeks. Don't you just wish Bath and Body Works would open here in the UK? It is not like it would fail - I'd happily single handily keep it afloat ha!

  5. I've never tried Yankee candles, but they sound really nice. Cute jars too but im fussy about candles that have stickers on them as I like to reuse the jars as a pretty holder. If you have Glasshouse candles in the UK they are worth checking out! A cheaper alternative to Diptyque!

  7. Love them all - I only got a mini of Leaves though! Also I wanted to get a few more before leaving FL but the SAs had said a woman had come in and bought every single mason jar candle - hundreds of them - from the 3 main B&BW stores in the area..I thought of you haha! ;) Glad you managed to get some before they got cleared out!

  8. I just recently got one of these mason jar candles from there, and I believe the scent is "Vanilla Snow," with a snow flake on the front. I'm trying to save it for when it's closer to the holidays, but it smells SO GOOD, I don't know how much longer I can wait!!
